A BRIEF REPRIEVE!

Want some time to catch up on all the LONGEST OF THE LONG THAT WERE EVER LONG fics that have been posted?

Well now is your chance! I just posted one of the final pieces of artwork, and then there will be no new posts until tomorrow afternoon when we post the final fic and art that will herald the end of this year's hd_holidays fest. We know that we've had an extraordinary amount of long fics this year (longer than we've ever had - by far!) and folks are having a hard time keeping up (not that we're complaining - there are worse things to be behind on, no?)...so we arranged the schedule to give you a bit of breathing room before tomorrow's final entries.

Now would be a good time for all of the recipients in this year's fest to make sure that they've left a response on their gift - even if only to say that you haven't had time to read it yet because of the insane holiday season and you'll get to it ASAP!

We will, of course, have our usual guessing poll to be posted on Sunday, and are looking to post reveals on or about January 14th. More on all of that after the fest officially closes on Saturday evening. Yes, I will be a sad loser who is home on New Year's Eve, but trust me - I want to be!

Until then, enjoy the brief reprieve to read fic and catch up on commenting/reviewing your favourite pieces! And if you are so gracious as to rec something to your flist, please make sure to link to the hd_holidays comm entry and not the uploaded story itself (which has no rating, no warnings, no summary etc).

Cheers!
